Critical Monday’s 14 Chapter is ready to fly, and this is a big one, peeps: Australian hot act Iain Mac aka Stockholm Syndrome (SXDNS165) debuts on the rising French label, curated with iron fist and love by Bonnie Spacey, with two interesting cuts: The dance floor banger “Liberty & Pursuit” and the introspective slo-mo “Servitude”, the one we were solicited to premiere, by the way. The two originals by themselves would be already more than enough to make the fans of dark grooves consider the release an indispensable one, then they check the artists on the remix duties – Chinaski, the headliner of our 1st event after the lockdown, and Back From The Wave, part of our Takeover on Espacio Cielo –, that’s when they realise there’s no other option besides considering the release an indispensable one.
“Servitude” is a spookiness-infused piece with an ominous and frightening atmosphere devoted to sending shivers down the spine especially because of its eerie piano line – played by Pennywise –, and creepy vocals – sung by Pinhead. All joking aside, what we have here is another example of Iain’s versatility and creativity, no wonder he is considered one of the big guns amid the so-called Indie Dance/Dark Disco scene.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Beatport page of the label.
